Create a set option in Alma for Acquisitions and Resources imports for imported files larger than 50 records
In Alma Acquisitions, we import bibliographic records from vendors such as OCLC in batch. It would aid efficiency if the option existed for the imported records to be immediately available in a set for further processing. As of February 2018, this can only be done on imports of 50 or fewer records, using the Monitor and View Imports, Report, Preview Records functionality, which creates an "or" query in Alma that can be saved as a set for further manipulation or export. A similar process (though slightly different) exists for Resources.
In both Acquisitions and Resources, if the imported file contains more than 50 records, Alma splits the file into groups of 50 and processes them separately, although reporting on them together. There is no option to preview or create a set (using the technique above) for any of the bibliographic records imported after the first 50. The entire import should be made available for preview, either in batches that correspond to the file split or as a single file. Better still, a "create set" function could be added as an option to Bibliographic Records Imported.
